Wait! Whet??? Kendu Wants MJB To Pay How Much In Spousal Support?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

I’m not sure if you agree but I don’t think Kendu (Mary J. Blige’s soon to be ex-husband) deserves any type of settlement, but obviously a divorce court judge might feel he does.

The Jasmine Brand is reporting that Kendu Isaacs WANTS MJB to pay HIM (yes…she has to pay HIM) $100K a month in spousal support.

Are you ready for this? Here is the list of necessities in order for him to live a NORMAL life (post Mary):

The items include: $5,000 a month to support his parents, $4,971 for two children from a past relationship, $1,200 he pays on eating out and the $60,000 in rent he owes to several properties, $2,500 on auto expenses and transportation, $5,708 for a housekeeper and maintenance on his properties and another $1,723 on groceries.

My recommendation, he should start prepping his food on Sunday’s like I do and pitch a Back To Life…Back To Reality TV show with Mike Epps’ ex-wife since clearly they have the same goals in life! #THIRSTY

#LipSync4Lupus Challenge With Baltimore’s Most Talented TV and Radio Personalities

2014-06-10 06.31.52

Ever sit in the car, listening to your favorite singer or rapper (whatever you listen to) and imagine you’re them, live on stage, hitting all the notes and making all the facial expressions? Yeah! Me too!

Jimma Fallon started something with the Tonight Show LipSync challenge! Then the phenom continued with the LipSync Challenge show, hosted by LL Cool J! That show is amazing! Celebs from film, television, music and everything else take the stage and live out their fantasies while performing a lipsync routine of their favorite songs; competing for the title of champion (I guess they get a trophy or money to a charity).

That is what I thought about one day while driving home from work listening to Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”. Why not have a lipsync challenge that benefits a very important charity?

So I put some ideas together and contacted my good friend Vanessa Payne, who is currently living with lupus and has a foundation and event in support of Lupus Awareness.

Lipsync-4-Lupus-Challenge-Final-Draft

With no questions asked, LipSync 4 Lupus was born! We pitched the idea to Lupus Research Alliance and Bill Bateman’s Bistro and they were so excited to hear there will be an event to help raise money for research!

Bateman’s Bistro has agreed to donate 20% of everything sold that night (drinks/dinner) to Lupus Research Alliance. Awesome right?

Baltimore news anchors and radio personalities have formed teams to perform some old school, new school and surprise routines on September 13th at Bill Bateman’s in Reisterstown from 6P to 9P.

Talent like Patrice Sanders (FOX 45), Konan and Persia Nicole (92Q Jams), Gina & Greg (Today’s 101.9), Jammer Daniels (MIXX 106.5), Poet (WPGC) and more! Hosted by Scott Garceau (105.7 The Fan), Priestly (MIXX 106.5)! 

Join us on Tuesday, September 13th! It’s for a great cause and some of your favorite news anchors will be taking the stage!

RADIO TEAM -1 

TEAM RADIO I: Gina & Greg of Today’s 101.9, Poet WPGC and Jammer MIXX 1065

RADIO TEAM 2

TEAM RADIO II: Persia Nicole & Konan and Lil’ Black of 92Q and Stretch of WKYS and Tiara Latriece of DTLR Radio

#MediaChicksRock Luncheon The Start Of A Movement

media chicks (Media Chicks Luncheon, 2016)

 

I’ve always been one to support my fellow females in the media. If they’re traffic anchors, radio pesonalities, producers, television, newspaper (print), or social media, we all work hard and deserve the same amount of respect and support as anyone else in this industry.

So, I figured why not show my ladies in the media (I call them Media Chicks) some love by inviting them to a private luncheon where we can share strories on how we got started, who motivates us, and so much more.

Vanessa Herring

(Ki Ki and WBAL’s own Vanessa Herring) 

In attendance were news anchors from WJZ and WMAR in Baltimore as well as WBAL TV, Radio One, TV One, Metro Traffic, Total Traffic & Weather, Radio One and CBS radio/TV.

 

Sharing lunch with these women was an amazing experience not just for me but for anyone looking to start a career in the industry. I’ve received advice from news veteran Kelly Swoop (WMAR) and Ashley James (WMAR) about what to expect when starting a career in television.

Nicki Mayo

(Ki Ki and Nicki Mayo go dress shopping) 

Nicki Mayo (TV One, Associated Press and President of Black Association of Black Journalists) helped me learn some pretty “bloat” appropriate poses when taking pics and wearing the right “newscaster wrap dress”.

Ki Ki and Kelly Swoop

(Ki Ki & ABC 2’s own Kelly Swoop take a selfie #MediaChicksLuncheon)

I’ve learned a lot that day and plan on doing activities like this one more often. I encourage you to do the same for others in your industry of choice. It helps get to know those you work with and learn more from them. It will help you gain a little more respect and figure out if this is where you really want to be.

Salute to all the media chicks in the entire industry! You are appreciated!

Headed To A Theater Near You: One on One w/ Kimia Workman (Actress/Dancer)

Introducing Miss Kimia Workman (Actress/Dancer) [KNOW THIS NAME]

ThisRadioChickRocks

2014-06-10 06.31.52

Kimia Workman entered a contest hosted by 92Q Jams (Baltimore) for a chance to host a portion of the Stone Soul festival and let me say SHE DID THAT!

Kimia Workman, Sheffield Institute graduate and former intern for 92Q, showed up at Druid Hill Park on time, without an entourage, and ready to work! She did so well, she received an internship with 92Q Afternoon jock, Konan and worked as a board operator for Radio One, Baltimore.

Her path has changed as she is now concentrating solely on becoming an actress; working in dramatic short films, stage plays and music videos.

Kimia not only acts but she dances and models! She’s THAT CHICK!

I can’t wait for that one day, I’m at a movie theater and I see my girl Kimmie on the screen featured as the main character or supporting actress in a major film! It’s going to happen!…

What’s NFL Sunday Without A Real NFL Chick?

You don’t know football like this chick knows football….

ThisRadioChickRocks

2014-06-10 06.31.52

I believe we met at a Mint Condition concert I attended years ago with mutual friends (and my sorority sisters) Tramaine Hickson and Dana Coleman (RIP). I thought Syreeta, I mean, The NFL Chick was a delight to be around. She’s funny and smart and she’s a woman you’re not intimidated to be around. You know those types. The ones that are so pretty, you instantly think about what might be wrong with them so it gives you an excuse to hate their guts? Nah, not Syreeta.

She and I became close a few years ago and I must say I haven’t met a woman who loved sports as much as she does. My boo is a producer for SiriusXM, calls football for Howard University and watches every freakin sports match (game, meet, whatever you call it) on TV everyday, and I still think Syreeta can take him. (sorry babe)

She’s A “Digital” Chick? One On One w/ Roxie Digital of Radio 103.9 New York

Did you read the one about….

ThisRadioChickRocks

promo-pic.jpg

I surf the web A LOT and I listen to a lot of different stations (mostly urban format) and one station in particular is Radio 103.9 (Cumulus Media) in New York City.

I found Roxie Digitalon IG and admired how she would post show content about television shows  such as Scandal, Love & Hip Hop, RHOA, and everything else that everyone else is talking and tweeting about.

She uses this information for her weekend show on Radio 103.9 which is one of the most important ingredients necessary to becoming an effective radio personality.

So of course, I had to reach out to her and ask if she wouldn’t mind sharing her expertise with This Radio Chick Rocks. She said “yes”!

Whenever you’re in New York or surfin’ the web (or in your app store), make sure you look up Radio 103.9, New York’s best mix R&B!

Have you read the one about the Shugga Mama?

2014-06-10 06.31.52

It was a late night, just before Christmas and I’m at an event at the Horseshoe Casino downtown Baltimore.

I have to meet my manager for a toy drive promoted by a few folks who had invited a few “industry” people to mingle and of course, donate some toys to some needy families.

It was a good night! I met a few people and even ran into a few Radio Chicks but one part of the night that was a truly a highlight was when I ran into the ladies of Shugga Mama Radio.

I had never heard of the show (until then) and I was truly inspired and excited to see two beautiful women doing their thing and hosting their own internet radio show that’s actually making some noise!

Since then, they’ve agreed to join me in the Urban Hang Suite and one of the hosts and I stay in contact with one another via social media.

So it was only right I ask for an interview! Why not?

Meet one half of Shugga Mama Radio (Radio On Fire) Miss Shamika Shantel:

 

Shugga Mama Radio 1

Station (market/format/timeslot): 

Radio On Fire is the home of ShuggaMama Radio. Live broadcast every Monday @ 6:30-8:30pm on Radioonfire.com.

 
How long have you been in the radio business? 

An exciting 2 years with many more great years ahead. Yes, I’m claiming it.

 

Have you ever been in any other markets? If so, where and for what station?

I also do party promotions, Event Planning, Public Relations for small businesses.

 

What is more enjoyable/different? 

I absolutely love radio and music but honestly, I enjoy the party planning more because I really just love seeing people having fun and enjoying life in the moment especially ones that I help create.

 
What was it about radio that struck your interest?

I love music and entertainment, so when I was presented with an opportunity to connect with people through music and conversation; I was like let’s do it!

 

????????????????????????????????????

Would you say it’s hard to work with/for women in radio than it is to work with/for men?

Honestly, working with women has been easier than I expected.  In the past I have not had the best of luck working with females other than my best friend.  I host the radio show with Chenelle Nicole and we both have diva moments but we have become good friends outside of business so those moments go right over our head like it never happened.

The women in radio have welcomed me with open arms, as well as the men.  Much love to Tiara Laniece DTLR Radio and Star Brooks WPB Networks. The love and support has definitely been overwhelming because I wasn’t expecting it but definitely received and appreciated.

 

What do you think is the most challenging being a talent in your career? 

Knowing that so many people are watching, listening, and JUDGING!  I’m learning not to go home with people opinions of me because those opinions of me haven’t paid one bill yet.  *snaps* Hmph!

 

 

 

Did you (or do you) have a mentor in radio? If so, who are they and what have they helped you on in reference to your career?

No, I wish I did.  I would love to have one. But when opportunity knocks trial and error works best for me.

 

What do you think about most female personalities “losing touch” with those who aspire to be where they are? Have you ever experienced this?

No haven’t.

 

????????????????????????????????????

How important is it for a female in your industry to reach out to other females to network, bond, learn, teach, etc?

It’s very important because coming together to be an inspiration to others.  We as woman have to learn how to uplift each other and come together.  There is power in numbers.  I’m actually working on an event now for teenage girls called L.I.L (Ladies Into Leaders) Tea Party.  I’m getting together a group of woman to speak and provide different resources to the city’s young ladies.
What makes a good radio talent?

Honestly I don’t know I am my worst critic and I’m still learning. But I do think you have to have tough skin you can’t always care about the negative things people have to say about you.

 

Is being an announcer where you want to retire?

Actually, no I want to produce radio and talk shows. I know it may be hard to believe but I’m a little shy; I rather be behind the scenes.

 

Do you want to lead in your industry at some point?  Oh Absolutely.

 

How challenging is it to come up with the topics of your show?

Not really, I always have so many crazy ideas in my head. What inspires you every day in reference to your show topics?  My friends we talk about the craziest things.  My show also highlights a lot of artists in the DMV so the talent also inspires a lot of the shows.
How do you respond to women in the media who become out of touch from those trying to reach that particular level of success?

Honestly I can only worry about me.

 

There are many women in internet radio who consider themselves “true to the game”. Is there a such thing? Terrestrial radio verses internet radio.

What does that mean exactly “true to the game”  I read the book and it doesn’t make me think of anything positive.  lol.. Seriously tho, I wouldn’t want to limit myself to one thing if I’m capable of doing it all.

Shugga Mama 3

 

Is there pressure to “look” a certain way in radio? (to be considered for hosting, television, other opportunities).

I believe so, I’m a thick girl and when I read people comments they are just cruel about how I look; never mind what’s coming out of my mouth.  They are more concerned with how my hair is, what I’m wearing, what animal I look like… it’s just bad.

 

Have you ever been fired? How did you bounce back? 

I’ve been able to control whether I work or not, so no.

 

shugga mama 4

What genre of music do you like to listen to the most and why?

R & B…I love 90’s R&B!

 

What is your TURN UP song?

Don’t judge https://www.youtube.com/embed/i_kF4zLNKio” target=”_blank”>Trap Queen (lol) and Baltimore’s own https://www.youtube.com/embed/i3i2s3JELFs” target=”_blank”>Tate Kobang “Bank Rolls”

 

You’ve interviewed a lot of celebrities, was there ever a time you had an uncomfortable celebrity interview where it went terribly wrong? Describe.

I love Trina but I would have to say Trina.  The energy was just weird. We didn’t even release it.

 

Who was the best celebrity encounter and why?

Maybe its just me but all the celebrities I’ve met have been just weird.  I think they all be on mushrooms or something..lol …Chrisette Michelle was pretty dope though.

 

What’s the biggest misconception about you?  That I have an attitude or I’m mean.  I really do have a “natural mean mug” but I’m really a nice person and almost always happy. You just have to get to know me and judge a book by its cover.   I will give the shirt off my back if somebody needed it.  I’m just about my business and don’t take no (bleep) when it comes to being treated fairly.

 

shugga Mama 5

 

Who do you most admire in the radio industry and why?  Awww man I have to say Angie Martinez and Baltimore’s own KiKi Brown be holding it down!

 

What was the best advice anyone ever gave you? Don’t do it. (lol)  When people doubt me or don’t believe in me, it pushes me 10 times harder.

 

Where do you see urban radio in the next 10-15 years?  Dominated by women.

 

If you could give advice to someone wanting to be a radio personality, what would you say? Go for it! Don’t let nothing stop you from being who you want to become.

 

 

Who’s in your iPod/radar?

Right now I’ve been listening to a lot of Baltimore artists.

 

What do you want your legacy to be?

Iconic

 

Biggest regret is….

No regrets; just lessons and blessings.
